I have 52.73 % in btech. I am from it branch . So,after doing mba ,will it affect my placements . Suppose if I get good colleges like tapmi?

Diya Mondal Student Expert 22nd Jul, 2019

Doing MBA from a well known college like iim, Xavier etc will be really helpful. You may get good placements in bangalore and even in foreign countries. Your b. Tech percentage will not affect that much there. So try to get better MBA college than tapmi 


Whether The possibility of getting job is more in abroad or India?

Karvannan sevugamurthi 27th Jun, 2019

Hi aspirant

Whatever the course you study, you can get a job in both foreign countries and India. In India, you need not clear any language testing exams to get a job. Whereas in foreign countries, you need IELTS, TOEFL and GRE scores. But the salary will be high in foreign countries when comparing with India.

All the best.
